John Curtin Gallery

Curtin University engaged Apparatus to undertake three significant public art projects for Curtin’s new School of Design and the Built Environment and Exchange live-in learning precinct.

Helen is an excellent curator and project manager. The work of Apparatus is impeccable. The staff are mature and experienced, and they work incredibly hard to meet clients’ needs and those of the artist.

In all of the Curtin projects Apparatus ensured the quality and merit of the artwork remained a high priority. We would be delighted to work with Apparatus again.

Chris Brady

Senior Development Manager,

Apparatus have provided exceptional services in developing a professional development program supporting Noongar artists to realise a series of major artworks as part of the Subi East redevelopment project.

This is ground-breaking work, and we’re pleased to be in the safe and experienced hands of Apparatus. The team’s combined curatorial, design, engagement, and public art background uniquely positions them to plan and implement this high-profile project, which we hope will be a game-changer for the Noongar artists involved.

I highly recommend Apparatus as professional creative producers. I have no doubt they will deliver exceptional results for any project they’re contracted to undertake.

When assessing candidates for our multimillion dollar artwork commission, the decision was easy. Apparatus were by far the most experienced, with a proven track record. The Art Gallery of Western Australia’s project is high profile and politically sensitive, and we needed a consultant we could have the utmost confidence in. Helen’s reputation as an industry leader has been fully supported by the quality of her work.
